By William Edward Dix Political power is in the hands of the majority. Working hard and creating personal wealth is up to the individual, not the state. The people in South Africa all have an opportunity to increase their wealth and improve their living standards. Its up to them to do this through patience and dedication . Unfortunatly the majority of South africans belive that power is the gate way to entitle ment not hardwork. So no I dont belive that whites have to much power it simply is that they work harder and smarter and the other people dont like this so they bemoan this fact and try to point to economic power which is actually open to all, they just have to get off the backsides and do it.

By William Edward Dix Not unlike the Americans in the USA. The red Indians live on reservations. That was the apartheid dream of separate development. Now the whites remaining in South Africa are 2nd and third sometimes even fifth generation citizens. Now why should Africa alone remain "black". The rest of the world is multi ethnicity. Why should Africa not be racially diverse Is their a preferred ownership to this world? Whites in South Africa make up about 8% of the population, are not the majority in government , in fact they are a small minority so the claims that whites have too much power is unfounded and is a smoke screen to draw attention away fro a truly incompetent government that even has its own alliance partners turning on it. Please understand that if you or any person is born into this world he has as much right as the next person to stay in the country of his choosing, select a religion of his choice and work in the industry that is compatible with his skill set and education. The South African constitution is one of the most comprehensive in terms of legislation and human rights protection so why the fuss?
